. and then of course we need to strengthen our gun laws. i hope that either by executive action or leglative action, we will convene such a commission. but, mr. president, i want to make very clear i am not offering this idea as a substitute for any aion that we can take now, any action that the president can take now, for instance, with regard to the existing laws that are aimed at preventing people who shouldn't have guns from having them, keeping guns that really are military and are not part of hunting or sports shooting off the market. anything the president can do, anything congress can do. now, i would support a restoration of the assault ban today. these are wpons developed by our military originally, not by private industry for hunting or sport shooting purposes. they shouldn't be sold. we have got the background checks in the brady bill. if you attempt to buy a gun from a licensed federal firearms dealer, why shouldn't that exist for people who would buy a gun at a gun show, where incidentally terrorists we know have bought guns. so anything we can do quickly we ought to do. but i also think

to helping developing countries to take action, through the transfer of funds, and the right kind of technology. but what we are seeing here in doha are many developed countries leaving the kyoto protocol, and joining the united states, who had left some time ago, and the remaining members in the kyoto protocol are putting forward emission reduction figures that are too low -- something like 20% for europe, which they have already achieved. so the system we started with in bali, five years ago, that developed countries would cut emissions by 5% to 20%, a similar effort under the convention. >> the u.s. did not sign onto the kyoto protocol? >> under bush, they agreed they would do similar to would be to recall program -- joke part of all members would do -- tkyoto protocol but never signed on. now each country puts forward whenever it can do, and that will not be challenged. this is not based on science. as a result we have very low emissions coming from developed countries, which means they are showing a bad example to developing countries who would want to do more, but seeing tha
on the table. the president will be immediately notified of the senate's action and the senate will resume legislative session. mr. levin: mr. president? the presiding officer: the senator from michigan. order in the senate, please. the senator from michigan. mr. levin: we hope that cloture will be voted now. we've disposed of 119 amendments to this bill. i talked to the majority leader. and if we do vote cloture tonight, which of course senator mccain and i hope we will, we're still going to try to clear some additional amendments using the same process we've used up to now. and we would hope that we could clear some additional amendments right up to the time of final passage. we've asked the majority leader, hopefully we can get to final passage tomorrow at some point. the clerk: cloture motion, we the undersigned senators in accordance with the provisions of rule 22 hereby move to bring to a close debate on s. 3254 for fiscal year 2013 for military activities of the department of defense and so forth and for other purposes. signed by 18 senators. the presiding officer: by unanimous cons
action. now, depending -- the pentagon has drawn up preliminary plans to send as many as 75,000 troops into syria to secure these chemical weapons sites, but as of just today there have been no signs that any of those forces have been put on alert or there was any detail planning to do this. so there was some question here of whether assad may be calling t president's bluff. >> rose: and what exactly do you think they would be prepared to do and what would trigger that? clearly the movement of them. but it is more or less than that? >> well, u.s. intelligence officials were watching very closely the movement of syrian forces and in also trying to divine the intentions of president assad. clearly the rebels in syria have had a very good few -- past few weeks and making advances on the capital of damascus and president assad really feels like his back may be up against the wall. but is he desperate enough now to play this card which would almost certainly draw some kind of western response. >> rose: one more time, the red line is simply moving the chemical weapons? >> well, this is inter
, wait. hold your horses. do not take action because kissinger is going to move on with provided doctors. when the telegram was sent from the state department to the embassy during yom kippur, the egyptian and syrian armies were already on their way to destroy the jewish state. that is an example of a mistake because the leader at the time, she was afraid to take a preemptive attack. she was afraid to hold the reserve because she said i don't know what will be the reaction in washington. and dr. kissinger was very strong. nixon was going down, he was going up and she was afraid from his reaction. because of her approach, we almost lost the world. that is why today we do with the issue of iran, we have to take the decision which is good for israel. maybe it will not be popular in the u.n. for sure. everything you say about israel and the standard of the one sponsored by u.s. money of some event maybe one day will be a committee to look at the decision and the u.n. but also it will not be popular in the u.s. only today, secretary clinton a few hours ago said we should not put any red light
no discrimination against any minorities. this is why we do not have any fear that specific actions will be taken against minorities, against christians. we do not forget at the same assad -- if you are the assad regime, but it belongs to the alawites. if you are made specific group within the alawite community, you are investing in the civil war. there is a fear about the future of the alawite community. since many from the community, they played a role killing other syrians for money, for support from the security forces. but we are committed to the syrians for all. we are proposing within the opposition a program called a transitional justice that can assure all the minorities to be a part from syria -- in 1956 the prime minister, the majority of the christians. a minority of the minority. even that as he became prime minister for two terms. the muslims have 4 seats in parliament and this supported his positions. in syria we did not have a history of civil war. many changes in the social fabric. i think the nature of the syrian society as a conciliation between still exists. this is a great as
larger numbers of people, whether to take military action of some kind that could prevent a mass atrocity. if that is the choice we now face, it is a grave and sobering decision and would put the starkest expression on the failure of the administration's policy towards syria. savage and unfair fight, this raged now for nearly two years. the longer this conflict has gone, the worse it has gotten. all of those who argued for non intervention because of the things that might happen are now happening because we failed to intervene. and the fact is that we have now reached a point where there are weapons of mass destruction that may be used and also, there is a significant question about the security of these weapons should assad fall. we would like to make several points, one is that it's now up to the russians to do everything possible and maximize their influence over assad to make sure that he does not use these weapons. it is time for the united states and our allies to make it clear to assad that this is an unacceptable act. it is time for us to be ready for any eventuality, including th
-morsi demonstrators defended his actions. also last week, christian leaders withdrew from the assembly drafting a new constitution. they objected to the majority islamists who are redefining what shari'a law means. here in jerusalem, some are concerned about what morsi's actions mean between israel, egypt, and the rest of the middle east, morsi gained international prestige by helping to pro broker a cease-fire between israel and hamas, but morsi's latest actions like like he is trying to establish an iranian-style religious state. chris mitchell, cbn news, jerusalem. >> wendy: coming up, he is only one of a handful of christians who survived the killing fields. how this man is still reaching out with god's love tois h >> wendy: welcome back. the 2012 film festival recently honored more than 20 films for their redeeming film lines, including "the pink room." it chronicles girls trapped in the sex trafficking. but its message is one of hope. >> reporter: "the pink room" let's the viewers in on the pain of young trafficked girls in the village of swipock. the main economy here, child prostitution. trag
applause for his speech to the algerian parliament. he did not apologize for france's actions, but he did acknowledge the brutal nature of colonial rule. >> for over 133 years, algeria was subjected to a profoundly unjust and global system -- brutal system. this system has a name. it is colonialism, and i recognize the suffering that it inflicted on the algerian people. >> hollande and the algerian president have signed a declaration of friendship and cooperation. it lays the groundwork for closer economic cooperation. investment from france is welcome in algeria. french carmaker renault's as it is drawing up plans to build a new plant in the country -- french car maker reynaud says -- french car maker renault says it is drawing up plans to build a new plant in the country. >> israel's plans to build new homes for jewish settlers in occupied territories have been condemned by the international community. the ute's foreign policy chief strongly opposed what she called the unprecedented expansion of settlements. >> these latest plans were also condemned by members of the security council, w
with the city. we did a consent agreement with them earlier this year that called for a number of actions to happen because we do need better services for the citizens of detroit. they deserve it. and we need to achieve results. the problem is the mayor and the city council haven't been able to get on the same page. we are going through the process now of saying if they don't get it done, we are going to start a review, hopefully next week, that will go on for 30 days to say if it doesn't get done, there are other actions, including emergency managers that we should be considering for detroit. so i'm clearly encouraging the city and the mayor to get these issues on the table, have them work together and get resolutions so we can move forward and get detroit growing again. >> explain to me the emergency managers. does that mean the state steps in and does the job for them? is that what you mean? >> yeah. in michigan we've had a statute for some time. we had some controversy and we're under the old statute now. this goes back to many years where we had emergency manager status. they can com
the other way. demint's decision means that the center of politician action in 2014 will be in the state of south carolina. three marquee statewide contests down there, two senate races and the governor's race. the fighting atmosphere of the palmetto state is legendary. throw in all of the state contests, the presidential primary season that kicks off very early in that state because it's early. and you've got yourself a humdinger down there. south carolina governor nikki haley does get the job of appointing demint's replacement who will serve until 2014 when there is a special election. she said yesterday she could make that decision within a week. among the names in the mix, congressman tim scott, former congressman barrett, henry mcmaster who was a candidate for governor in 2010, nathan ballentine and ted pitts. now many conservatives made it clear that they prefer tim scott and are bordering on strong-arming nikki haley, trying to box her into doing it after demint's announcement. look at the statement scott himself released. quote, looking forward. governor haley will now appoint a
long we have used politics and the second amendment to cover up our lack of action. yes, the supreme court affirmed we have a right to bear arms, but in that same ruling the court made clear that right is not unlimited. we do not, as justice scalia put it, have an unlimited right to keep and carry any weapon whatsoever in any manner whatsoever for whatever purpose. our individual right to bear arms is limited by a right among others to keep our children safe. any of those children could have been one of ours and for 20 parents, it was. we may not be able to stop every crime, we know that no single law or set of laws can prevent every act of senseless violence in our society, but we have the ability and the no-how to prevent many of them. we must simply find the courage. we can no longer be bystanders to injustice. we cannot continue to look on and do nothing. as shakespeare said, the fault lies not within our stars but in ourselves. we must act. thank you. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields. the chair recognizes the gentleman from washington, mr. mcdermott, f
or not they would take up a series of appeals over same sex marriage. they decided to take no action. let's bring in our legal guys avery freeman who is in cleveland and richard herman, he joins us from las vegas. so, gentlemen, everybody was excited about this. this is about equal protection. there were ten cases -- a total of five case that's the supreme court could have considered on this particular issue. why did they decide to pick any of them? avery? >> actually, they may very well take one of them, deb. what's going to happen here is, you're correct, there were ten petitions, five cases, one involving prop 8, the referendum in california and the 1996 congressional prohibition. there are so many questions. question is will the supreme court take the case? i think it would have really been impossible for the justices to make a decision on friday. they're going to continue to deliberate and i think we look forward to seeing something going to the supreme court. we just don't know which one of the cases the court will accept. >> richard, you know what's interesting about this is one of the rea

, and of course we need to strengthen our gun laws so i hope by legislative action we'll convene such a commission. mr. president, i want to make clear, i am not offering this idea as a substitute for any action that we can take now. any action that the president can take now, for instance, with regard to the existing laws that are aimed at preventing people who shouldn't have guns from having them. keeping guns that are military and not part of hunt organize sports shooting, off the market. anything the president can -- anything the president can do anything congress can accommodate i support a restoration of the assault ban today. these are weapons developed by our military onlily north by private industry, for hunting or sports shooting purposes. they shouldn't be sold. we've got the background checks and the brady bill. if you attempt to buy a gun from a licensed federal firearms dealer, why shouldn't that exist for people who buy a gun at a gun show? where, incidentally, terrorists we know have bought guns. so anything we can do quickly, we ought to do, but i also think that a commission will
marines were killed in action. when he came home to america, he suffered from ptsd, as many of our warriors do. he spent time in a recovery facility in california to cope with the mental wounds of war. then in august, john decided to get some r&r. he wanted to go to costa rica with a fellow marine, ian, and they wanted to go on a surfing trip. according to ian, surfing gave john a peace of mind and helped really with his therapy. so the two packed up their car with their surf boards and began their journey from florida to costa rica. their trip took them through texas to the border, brownsville, texas. there they crossed the international border into matamoros, mexico, and that's as far as they got. john carried with him 100-year-old antique gun, a family air loom that belonged to his grandfather. when they arrived at the customs and border protection in texas, john did what he was supposed to do. he filled out all the necessary paperwork. he talked to u.s. customs and verified with them that the gun did not violate any mexican law. the two allegedly handed the mexican officials th
weapons in recent days. now, secretary of state, hillary clinton says the united states will take action if they release those chemical weapons on their people. >> this is a red line for the united states, we have made that clear. there is in doubt there is a line between even the horrors they have already inflicted and moving to what would be an internationally con telled step of utilizing their chemical weapons. >>shepard: syria could have several hundred ballistic missiles in their arsenal, capable of carrying chemical warheads. the united nations is pulling all of their "nonessential international staff" from syria as fighting intensifies in damascus. this is amateur video that reportedly shows violent airstrikes in a suburb but fox news cannot confirm the. >> -- confirm the the authencity. hillary clinton was not clear about what the red line would be? >>reporter: that is right. for the talk about a "red line" is seen as crossing, officials are being vague about the actions by the americans that it would trigger. >> we think it is important to prepare if contingency planning. we are

action on the ground that assad may be getting ready for an act of desperation which is using chemical weapons. >> joe, tell us what we know about this stock pile, where they might be and how is it possible for us to prevent them from using them, and is it fair to assume as the ambassador just said, that would be an act of desperation, a sign on his part, of genuine weakness? >> the syrian chemical weapon program has been around for 40 years. it really picked up steam in the 60s, and recently as the mid 90s. we had evidence that russian agents were helping assad secure chemical precursors. we know he has mustard agents, and seron and possibly vx, a more toxic and per citizen tent agent. he has scud missiles, and drop munitions and these are very deadly agents. a few drops on your skin will kill you. we've seen activity at some of the known chemical chemical weapons sites. does not seem is he for securing weapons withweapons but. that's why we heard the president say as directly as he can, the world is watching. if you use these weapons, there will be consequences. >> cenk: let's take t

came out to the national action network feeds the homeless and seniors and we stood together and said despite or differences, we agree on banning assault weapons, and we agree that there must be gun control, hoping to use that as a model, saying that there must be bipartisan agreement about gun control in washington. if we can get unlikely people to stand together, we can maybe lead to some sane gun policies in this country. >> certainly you're no stranger to end the fight to gun violence, but when we talk about what you're trying to do next month, what are your hopes there? >> my hopes are to raise with the teachers, randy weingarten of the federation of teachers, all talking about how we raise the point when mr. lapierre and the nra had the opportunity to say let us deal with some sane gun policies, let's talk about how people don't need a magazine with 100 rounds in it, that's notself defense, that's not hunting. and how we can back up -- yes, people have a right to protect their family, but you don't need all of this to protect your family. he did the opposite. he said let's put a
read and then pushed aside. >> one of the reasons the president is asking for action without delay is because he knows change can be accomplished, and it's been done before. the assault weapons ban signed by president clinton reduced crime lower than it had been in a generation. it's been 18 years since the crime bill was signed, and eight years since it was allowed to expire. perhaps 24 is why president obama is turning to the bill's architect for guidance. >> i want to single out for special recognition the chairman of the senate judiciary committee who has fought tirelessly for this bill for six long years, senator joe biden. would you stand, senator joe biden. [ applause ] >> the choice of joe biden to lead the current task force on gun violence is no coincidence. the vice president fought against the odds to get democrats and republicans on board for the 1994 crime bill. biden is also a powerful symbol on this issue. his fight to curb gun violence helped him receive an "f" rating from the national rifle association, which i think really makes him qualified for job. the nra cal

the government action. in the letter, okamura said japan's participation is essentially to make the hopes of people reflected. he called on abe to beef up the competitiveness of the country's farming sector. one of the industries that could be affected by the tpp. some members of the ruling liberal democratic party have voiced opposition to japan's participation in the tpp talks. about 100 members opposing the tpp held a meeting on friday. they said japan's participation could hurt agriculture and health care and insurance. leader of the group said the party should keep its election pledge that it will not accept an accord that would require partners to lift import tariffs without exception. that is all for me. it's back to the main news with gene otani. gene. >> japanese media report is casting doubt on chinese claims to the senkaku islands in the east china sea. chinese government recognized the islands as part of japan in a document more than 60 years ago. the wire service obtained a copy of a draft outline on territorial issues for a peace treaty with japan. the draft was produced in
people would say about but for our action and what we did, the senate probably would have passed that. we'll stay ingauged on capitol hill there's a lot of folks that want to -- republicans that want to move in another direction. want to sort of walk away from the founding principles and what republicans have stood for. we're going to hold their feet to the fire and present a different vision. >> would you like to go through it again? do you think you could win if you did it again? >> what i've said is it's four years from now. i'm going to keep my options open and we're going to stay involved in the fray and wait and see how things turn out. i felt like we were well positioned in 2012 to be the candidate that barack obama really didn't want to run against. and we'll wait and see how 2016 turns out. >> what do you take away from the race? what's the big lesson from the campaign? >> a couple of things. this idea we have to walk away from certain issues because they are not winning issues anymore, my response to that is when we play defense, we lose. and mitt romney, john mccain if you go b

of what they believe is virtue. it is a totalitarian society because it dictates your scope of action in life. it dictates fundamental moral choices about who to marry and whatever, all kinds of stuff. that's another way in which we need to understand and that also leads to some deeper appreciation of how you go about tackling this. very briefly, we should distinguish the term liberalism from democracy. democracy is simply a process. you had an election. he took a bow for their own enslavement and often do. people forget this. they think world for freedom. i'm sorry, but there's a constituency that is per submission. this is a site goes fact of life that is not fully appreciated. in the west. so how do you go about it? to distinguish between democracy and liberalism and you try as best you can to promote the spirit of liberalism, even if it is procedurally at the expense of the brotherhood. >> your response to that? >> i'm listening to this discussion which i enjoy thoroughly, but my mind as to how we do this. and i would throw home one point that i'm trying to stress here that i may
. it is about putting actions behind those words as well, which we have done in the state of texas. we have elevated the hispanic opportunities in that state. not only economically, by allowing them to participate in our government as well. jenna: paul ryan mentioned five decades of government that he says to change. you have been in texas politics for 17 years? smacked a little more than that. jenna: what is next for you? >> we have a legislative session for the next six months, making sure that we continue to keep texas as a great place to live in own a business and raise a family. jenna: governor, it's nice to have you on. thank you for the time today. >> my wife is from dallas, and we will be heading there. greg: you are not wearing your boots today. >> i'm walking a lot in new york city. greg: joining us now for a fair and balanced debate, local analyst juan williams, mary katharine ham. i get an earful in my house filled with women that republicans are losing on social issues. immigration, women's rights. gay rights and so forth. >> first of all, i am wearing cowboy boots bought in te
